The gap in knowledge and understanding between A-level exit and University entrance in Physics and Engineering has long been a concern to both school teachers and University tutors. 'The Language of Physics' is thus warmly to be welcomed, filling as it does the growing divide between general A-level texts and specialised undergraduate books. 6th formers wanting to prepare for University entrance in the applied mathematical and physical sciences should read 'The Language of Physics' to open their eyes to the sheer beauty of their subject, presented here in a straightforward and elegant manner. Confused first year science undergraduates will also find it invaluable in piecing together a wide range of seemingly disparate topics in a stylish and concise way. * Stephen Payne, University of Oxford *
This is an excellently written textbook that explains very clearly how to describe physical processes in terms of mathematics. This is an essential skill that undergraduates need to acquire and there are many illuminating problems given on mechanics, fields, rotation, oscillations and waves, circuits, and thermal physics. While it is principally aimed at first year undergraduates in physics or engineering, it would also be a very useful preparatory textbook for students about to start at university. It is highly recommended. * Nick Jelley, University of Oxford *
